I have used a pro seeder for two seasons and I find it very useful for sowing tiny seeds in to modules.

 It works by using one of three sized tips: you push the air out and use the vacumn to pick up individual seeds  :tongue2:and then push the air out to deposit the seed.   I don't use it for med/large seeds. but if you sow lots of tiny/expensive seeds, you might want to give it a go.  It does take a little practice to do it without thinking.  I used a couple of plates to practice.  And you still might want to have reading glasses handy   :tongue2:
I can resist anything except temptation.
